Tonight In Rock: Jon Brion, Amadou & Mariam, Daedelus, The Crabs
Amadou & Mariam will be performing tonight at the Henry Fonda Music Box | Picture via Amadou & Mariam's Myspace
Our Pick: Amadou & Mariam, Geggy Tah @ Henry Fonda Music Box
Tonight, as always, local multi-instrumentalist/producer extraordinaire Jon Brion (LAist Interview, #2, Review) will be jamming with friends at the Largo at the Coronet. LA-bred electronic mastermind Daedelus will be performing at the Downtown Independent Theater as a part of A Labrat Matinee VII: The Dublab 10th Anniversary Edition. And, lastly, local cover band the Crabs, which features members of the long-defunct Pasadena-based rock band Ozma, will be covering Weezer's 1996 tour de force Pinkerton in its entirety at the Knitting Factory's Front Stage. But we strongly suggest doing whatever it takes to get into the Henry Fonda Music Box to catch Amadou & Mariam, a blind Mali-based husband-and-wife musical duo. Pomona-bred duo Geggy Tah, which of course includes Greg Kurstin of the Bird and the Bee, are slated to kick things off.
You can find these listings as well as the rest of the week's in our weekly Week In Rock post, which goes up every Sunday.
